Best Crispy Baked Chicken Wings Recipe So Far

I am always searching for great chicken wing recipes.  I have tried different sauces, and different techniques, but have not found one that I thought was amazing…until now. 

Recently I searched yet again for a new recipe and came across a video that promised to be the best HOT wings ever. 

So I watched it and I just had to try making them. The thing that makes this recipe unique is that it is baked, not fried.  Well, that is not too unique. 

There are lots of baked chicken wing recipes out there.  What I think gives these wings their intense flavor is the layers of seasoning. 

The first layer is in the coating you put on the wings before they are baked. 

Then, the combination of spicy, sweet, and tangy sauce, gives the wings their final coat of yumminess. 

Also, the technique of baking the wings on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet, at a very high temperature, allows them to come out crispy and golden brown. 

Do not skimp on this step.  Go out and splurge on a $2 roll of parchment paper.  You will not regret it. 

So, this Crispy Baked Chicken Wings Recipe does not have a memorable story attached to it.  Only that it will be a new favorite on the Christmas Eve Appetizer table. 

So, on the fourth day of appetizers, Dianna is bringing to you…Crispy Baked Chicken Wings.
